The Baltimore Ravens released running back Le’Veon Bell on Tuesday.
Bell signed with Baltimore back on Sept. 7, and was activated from the practice squad in early October.
He rushed for 83 yards and two touchdowns in five games as a Raven.
Bell confirmed his release via Twitter on Tuesday in an emotional message praising the city and franchise. He also personally thanked Ravens head coach John Harbaugh and general manager Eric DeCosta.
“This hurts, but it’s been a blessing to be here to say the least,” Bell tweeted. “I’ve enjoyed every second of this short period & gotta whole new meaning of what this city is like & it’s a great place to be.”
Bell played nine games for the Chiefs in 2020 after being released by the Jets, but saw limited opportunities en route to Kansas City’s Super Bowl LV appearance.
He was selected to three Pro Bowls and earned two First-Team All-Pro nods while in Pittsburgh.
